Description

The Main Wall aka The Wedge

How to get there

From the parking area on the north side, walk east a few hundred feet and you should see the wood plank foot bridge heading across the San Diego River. Follow the trail north. As you emerge off the trail onto a dirt road turn left (west) and you'll see the faded Forest Service bird of prey (rapor) sign. Just past the sign, a trail leaves the road heading north toward El Cajon Wall (aka The Wedge)
